Why talk about Long Island City?
We can discuss architecture and real estate all day. We can discuss history and the sheer weight of it all. But Long Island City in many ways represents everything that's happened in this decade. In 2010, none of this was here. Nine years later we have a city within a city pop up. An example of luxury prowess and rapid development, Long Island City is a testament that when capital, will, and political allowances are provided anything is possible. But the ultimate irony of Long Island City is its purpose: unlike the Chrysler or One World Trade, none of these structures have deep meaning. Unlike 1199 Plaza or Lefrak City, there is no social purpose. As impressive and sleek as they are, the structures that have come to rise here are simply tools of global investment. They meet no real demand (the vast majority of housing demand is still found in the largely unmet affordable sector) outside of niche, luxury comfort and in many ways strain an already stretched city. But real estate in many ways is like a hurricane, unstoppable and hellbent on its forward course. Only time will tell how Long Island City will be judged in the course of history. There are small beacons of community, both old (the stoic) and new (the global) forming and creating their own identity. Hopefully in time, the families who call LIC home will make something good out of all the glass and steel laying around.
As Long Island City is wrapped up, I'll be focusing on some skyline views and other various, random aspects throughout the city this week. We'll leave the lap of luxury and see the real New York for a bit. Next week, we'll go to the bellwether of a potentially dismal future for the city itself: Hudson Yards- the first truly gated neighborhood in New York City and a testament to how much money can be wasted in a single shot.
